Recently released anti-Trump text messages between senior DOJ officials raised alarm bells throughout the FBI on Wednesday, with Department of Justice lawyer Lisa Page mentioning a mysterious “task ahead” following Trump’s 2016 election victory.
The crop of newly released text messages between Strzok and DOJ lawyer Lisa Page shed new light on allegations of widespread abuse and anti-Trump bias throughout the agency; with the duo saying how “depressed” they were following Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton.
“OMG THIS IS F***ING TERRIFYING,” Page sent to Strzok last November.
“Omg, I am so depressed,” he replied.
Less than one week later, Page followed up on their conversation, writing, “God, being here makes me angry. Lots of high fallutin’ national security talk. Meanwhile we have OUR task ahead of us.”
It’s unclear what “the task ahead of us” refers to, but may be related to an earlier exchange between the two DOJ employees suggesting they create an “insurance policy” should Donald Trump take the White House.
